SURF Time!

  • SURF!

    Sustained Uninterrupted Reading Fun!


    Students in Gates Chili School District are expected to read 25 books each year. You will be encouraged to read a variety of genres throughout the school year, and you will be given time each day to read silently in the classroom. For each book you read you will be required to complete a SURF sheet, and you will receive a star on our chart. We will have prizes throughout the year for those students who are reading a variety of genres, and a party at the end of the year for those who read 25 books!

    Please be sure to check with your child frequently as to his progress on this INDEPENDENT endeavor. We keep a chart in our classroom so the students are always aware of how close they are to reaching this very important goal.
